    The mending of the Russian-Turkish relations opens possibilities for the Southern Gas Corridor development, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Saturday.

    THESSALONIKI (Sputnik) – Though much remains to be done, including the implementation of a road map with Turkey and talks with the European Commission, there is considerable potential for this work, he added.

    "It is possible to state at this point that the restoration of cooperation with our Turkish partners provides an opportunity for the development of the Southern Gas Corridor," Dvorkovich said during a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

    The Southern Gas Corridor is expected to extend to over 2,000 miles, carrying natural gas from the Caspian Sea across Azerbaijan and Georgia into Turkey and on through Greece and Albania into southern Italy.
